Who We Are

The Progressive Maryland Education Fund (PMEF) is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization that researches and reports on public policy issues of concern to working families, engages in non-partisan leadership training focusing on developing young, low-income and of-color leaders, and performs non-partisan voter registration of historically disenfranchised minorities.


Our mission is to build a society and economy that works for all Marylanders, with special emphasis on traditionally marginalized groups–low and moderate-income residents, people of color, women, LGBTQ+, and all oppressed and exploited people.


Since PMEF’s founding in 2000, we have helped win important victories including increasing the state minimum wage to $15 per hour, bail and police reform, legislation to combat income inequality between men and women, and more.


PMEF’s primary path to power is community organizing and leadership development in traditionally marginalized communities.
